2001 Ford Focus ZX3 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Buy Focus's. this car has been nothing
but trouble. Emissions sensors pop and
the dealerships want me to rent a car
for 3 days so they can fix it under
warranty. UGGHHHH...If the value of the
vehicle wasnt dropping so fast I'd sell
or trade but I financed it for 4 years
with 15% down and I'm STILL upside down
on it. 26MPG is average with the AT.
The interior is starting to fall out of
it....It eats tires and wont keep
alignment on either axle. Brakes on
front end cost $375.00 in PARTS ALONE
because they dont have squealers...Pad
wear out and overheat the calipers...

Worst Features

Put some real front brakes on this car, get some help from Toyota or Honda on how to build interiors that dont fall apart after 2 years.The new and improved DPFE isnt.... 28MPG on this car is ludicrus.It isnt any bigger or faster then the 1989 Festiva I had but that car got 51MPG.
